The Animal Care Sanctuary’s Lifesaving Mission:

Our lifesaving mission envisions a community that promotes turning compassion into action for dogs and cats by adopting healthy animals into loving homes, promoting the human-animal bond through outreach, education and advocacy, spaying and neutering to end the suffering of overpopulation and to improve public health and the humane and compassionate treatment of all animals.

WELCOME TO ANIMAL CARE SANCTUARY

Thanks to our supporters, the Animal Care Sanctuary has been rescuing animals for over 50 years. On any given day, hundreds of dogs and cats are in residence. They come from closing or overrun shelters, areas hit by disaster, owner surrenders, or are abandoned, mistreated or have special needs. Since we have our own veterinary and behavioral team, we are able to give these animals the TIME & CARE they need. Some of the animals we take in would not have a chance in most shelters. Some may have been badly mistreated, never received veterinary care, or never known human kindness. Being a no kill shelter, allows us the time to find the perfect family for each of our animals.

Get to Know Animal Care Sanctuary from our founding roots to today, and the future we envision. Our journey began with our founder, Lesley Sinclair, more than half a century ago…”
Lesley Sinclair wrote so elegantly about the animals in her care. Lucky was one of Lesley’s beloved pets. This is why we work so hard to build on her dream. We are building the new clinic to complete Lesley’s vision of a sanctuary that provides food, medical care and love to animals until they find their forever home.
